How Dads can prepare their ASD kids
for the workplace

75%-80% of autistic adults are unemployed and underemployed

 

This is the statistic that keeps me awake at night.

 

Young autistic adults face immense challenges - and yes, discrimination - as they enter the workforce.  Paul enters into a lively discussion on this topic with Rebecca Beam, CEO & Founder of Zavikon, an organization dedicated to matching neurodiverse candidates with employers who believe inclusion is the future.

 

Paul and Rebecca discuss the following:

  • Common challenges ASD adolescents face as they enter the workforce

  • How ASD workers can self-advocate in the workplace

  • Small accommodations that supervisors and managers can make for their neurodiverse workers

  • What Dads can do to prepare their kids to enter the workforce
